Episode #1.5 

David's theories about a conspiracy at the heart of government look increasingly plausible, but concerns about David's psychological health are raised, and allegations about his and Julia's professional conduct come to light.

Police now dismiss Tahir as the bomber who killed Julia but, in identifying Andy as the failed sniper, suspect a connection with the real killer. David links Longcross to Nadia's terrorist husband and finds out that Julia was aware of the prime minister's past indiscretions, suggesting a government conspiracy to silence her, led by her ex-husband, chief whip Penhaligon. David is taken off the case but is approached, seemingly by accident, by Julia's sacked PR, Chanel, before making an important discovery in Julia's flat. Written by don @ minifie-1

Part Six better be big!!
27 October 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I'm not sure if other viewers are in the same boat as me, but after this part I'm now confused and shocked. I'm shocked, because what happened in Part 4, actually happened, and wasn't a conspiracy, I'm confused, because every theory I had previously has fallen apart. I'm sure one person is responsible at the top for the recent goings on, and I can't wait to find out who.

It's fantastically well made, and well produced, it truly is lavish, political drama, a genre I've yearned for, for years, it's just gone in directions I wasn't expecting it to, with Jed Mercurio at the helm should I have expected anything else.

The acting remains on point, Richard Madden has done an incredible job, everyone else contributes just as well, I'm particularly enjoying Nina Toussaint-White's performance as Louise Rayburn, she's terrific.

I think you need to watch this while you're stone cold sober, or you'll lose the thread of it. I'm still loving it. 8/10
